Located in the heart of historic Brooklyn Heights on a tree-lined street, 5 blocks from the Brooklyn Promenade, and 10 blocks from the Brooklyn Bridge Park, this charming, fully renovated 2 bedroom (one which is for Airbnb guests) is perfect for travelers in search of peace and quiet after an intense day in Manhattan. The apartment decor is inspired by The Jodhpur Palace located in Rajasthan. If I am out of town, I am able to accommodate more than 2 guests. Please send me a message.
The building is pre-war with many lovely details. There is tons of sunlight, rare for a NY apartment, and it's surprisingly quiet. The room is perfect for a single traveler or a couple.
NOTE: I require that all guests are verified, have a full profile up on Airbnb and other host recommendations.
Guests have access to everything except for my room.
I am more than happy to give guests recommendations to great restaurants, cute shops, etc.
There is only one bathroom. This apartment is my primary residence though I travel quite a bit. The main house rule is no shoes and no smoking.
No shoes or smoking in the house. Unfortunately, the apartment is not set up for babies or toddlers or pets.
I am the Executive Director of 30 Weeks, a program both created and funded by that incubates the world’s most talented designers to create products and launch companies. Before then I ran the Social Innovators Collective (which I founded) and produced classes and workshops on social enterprise and nonprofit business development at Harvard’s Social Enterprise Conference, Columbia and New York University’s Social Enterprise Boot Camp, School of Visual Art’s Impact Design for Social Change, A Better World By Design, General Assembly and others.
I've lived in New York since 1990 and though I love the city, I also love the outdoors – hiking, biking and swimming are some of my favorite summer activities. I'm an avid traveler and have been to over 50 countries. I return often to Italy where I lived for 3 years and still have close friends. Five things I couldn't live without are friends and family, music, my passport, chocolate, and my godchildren.
As a New Yorker, with so many friends coming through, I know the importance of what it means to have thoughtful guests!
